He was an active member of Word of Life Christian Fellowship located in the Bucksport Community. Employed at Eugenia's restaurant up to his death as a machine operator. He was a music enthusiast with many devices located in almost every room in the house and garage. Meeting people was not a problem for him, he could start a conversation with anyone at any time. Not being raised by his parents he rarely talked about his childhood and growing up and refused to answer questions related to the past. There was a good friend he met while living in Myrtle Beach, Damien Frinend. Eugene called him "his brother from another mother", their friendship relied on weekly calls and assisting monitoring his condo.
